CFI-L.A.'s Feed Your Brain Series Presents:
Michael De Dora
Advancing Secular Values Around the World
Sunday, Nov. 3
11 a.m. in Hollywood
SPECIAL LECTURE at 4:30 p.m. in Costa Mesa*
The Office of Public Policy is the Washington, D.C.-based political arm of the Center for Inquiry. Led by its director, Michael De Dora, its mandate is to advocate for reason, science, and secular values in the policymaking process. This includes lobbying at all levels of government - statehouses, Congress, the Administration, and the United Nation - to promote and defend separation of church and state, scientific evidence, and basic civil and human rights.
In his talk, De Dora will discuss questions such as: On which particular issues does the Office focus? Which methods does the Office use to carry out its advocacy? And how can average citizens get involved - and be effective - at the local level?
De Dora also serves as the organization's representative to the United Nations. He received a master's degree in political theory from Brooklyn College and a bachelor's degree in rhetoric and communication from SUNY-Albany. He maintains the blog The Moral Perspective and contributes essays to Massimo Pigliucci's blog, Rationally Thinking.
*This event will also be held at 4:30 p.m. at the Costa Mesa Community Center at 1845 Park Avenue, Costa Mesa -- Hosted by the CFI Community of Orange County.
